Craig's List had an add for two eighteen gallon totes full of red wiggler worms for only $15.00 a piece. I contacted the lady right away and told her I would buy both of the totes as soon as I get off work. When I arrived at her huge city house later that day, I was meat with a screening process to be judged worthy to buy these worms from her. I should have walked away right then.
She asked me if I knew how to care for them and wanted me to tell her how I do it. Then she went to great lengths to tell me what she feeds them and how often. Then she asked me what I had planned for her worms. I told her they would be used for composting, fishing and a source of protein for the chickens.
What happened next was a classic screen shot straight out of The Exorcist with the head spinning around and the demon voice. I do not know if you have ever made a Pakistani woman mad or not, but this lady went completely ballistic on me and I really did not understand a thing she was saying. I just know she was mad due to the twenty years of experience I have making the wife mad. I came to realize, the facial expressions and tone of voice are all the same no matter where you were born .
What I got out of it was, if I thought for one second about using her worms as feed then she would not sell them to me. Then I think I heard her say something about "Worm Murder" and I know I heard "Redneck" somewhere in there. She then went on to say she has been raising those same worms for over three years and they are her babies and need a good home to go to and not some butcher farm.
This made the second time I should have walked away from this nut case but I really wanted those worms. So I assured her as soon as I got them home, I would set her worms free to roam the farm and be happy until their last days without a care in the world.
Just as fast as she was demon possessed, she settle down and then happily handed them over.
I walked away shaking my head and mumbling, "Foreign City folks"
